Hull youngsters Ben Hinchliffe, Ellis Barkworth, Daniel Batty and Luke Lofts have signed their first professional contracts with the club.
Forward Hinchliffe and midfielder/defender Barkworth have signed two-year deals, while midfielder Batty and the versatile Lofts have put pen to paper on one-year contracts. All four players featured for the club’s under-21s side this season.
“All four of these boys have earned their first pro contracts and for that I would like to congratulate each and every one of them,” academy manager Tony Pennock told the club’s official website.
“No-one at this club gives contracts out that aren’t deserved and a lot of hard work and commitment has gone in by all four of them to get into this position.”
